I plan to use many different species since I'm doing a large layout with about 2,000 feet of G-gauge(45mm) track. I live in central Tennessee zone 7 and have been researching dwarf and miniatures.

What variety is the gorgeous, blue conifer in the foreground of the last photo?

Hi Diana. That tree is a Blue Cascade blue atlas cedar. It's very contorted, hard to find, but worth the effort and price.
